Community Assistance


Funding Opportunities

Communities are always looking for funding resources to make their dreams a reality.  There are a number of funding resources available for communities that meet their qualifications.


If you don’t know where your community is going, how will you know when you get there?

Planning for the future of your community is crucial to reaching your goals and measuring success.

Let us help you with your community planning needs. 

Grant Writing/Administration

Is your community in need of community, business, housing, recreational improvements?  We can help prepare your community to apply for grant funds that will bring about a positive change for your citizens.

We are proud to report that over $10 million dollars in grant and project funds have been raised by the Central Nebraska Economic Development District and Central Nebraska Housing Developers to date for the Central Nebraska region.
